This necklace features a super gemmy Amazonite cabochon. This pear shaped stone is a stunning of teal. The cabochon is encased in .999 fine silver and is seated on .925 sterling silver. The bail is a simple sterling silver wire loop for an elegant look. The pendant hangs from an 20 inch long sterling silver cable chain with a lobster clasp and a 3 inch extender. All jump rings have been soldered closed for safety.
For my fellow rock geeks: Amazonite was originally called Amazon Stone after the Amazon River even though there aren't any known occurrences of the stone there. Amazonite is a potassium rich form of feldspar. It has been used as a gem for over 2000 years and has been found at archeological dig sites from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.
